My friend Deb and I decided to try this restaurant because neither of us had ever been there. On a chilly afternoon, we immediately felt welcomed by the warm and cozy atmosphere. We were equally warmly greeted by a young man who explained the menu to us. We choose a soup and salad and were not disappointed My friend (not... More

This is an old building in downtown Worcester and parking is very limiters because of the government buildings. But it is worth the trouble. The inside is roomy and they have about 20 beers on tap including several Hill Farmstead brews. The pork belly with kale was excellent, best I've had. The bartender was a wealth of information on all... More

Wonderful farm to table establishment! There are decadents and savory meals at brunch that I still think about. It is wonderful having such fresh, local food in the city. The cocktails and beer are superb as well.

Take friends and family to this cool pub. The food is great. There is a wide variety of beers and great cocktails. The mac and cheese is delicious. Try their brunch menu on the weekends. They put a nest spin on some classic brunch dishes.

I have been here three times now and have sampled lunch, dinner and brunch. While the food is always unique and quite good, the brunch truly blew us away. The beer selection is diverse and they make some mean cocktails. If you are in Worcester you have to stop in.

Amazing food, amazing beer selection, amazing atmosphere, amazing staff. AMAZING. Pro tip: Get the burger. I didn't, but the rest of the table did and I regretted my decision. My meal was fantastic, but those burgers were over the top.

Portions a tad on the small side but everything was delicious. I love how all the menu options are local and from New England. I also wish they offered beer flights.
